Germany: 'We don't want Sharia to enter Germany furtively' - AfD's Petry

Leader of the far-right populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, Frauke Petry, gave a speech at a campaign rally at the Gallushalle restaurant in Grunberg, Friday.
While addressing her supporters, Petry defended Afd from accusations of anti-Semitism while denouncing German Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door immigration policy, claiming that Angela "Merkel was the one who clearly opened the doors, and not by accident, to the biggest anti-Semitic flow into Germany since the war ended."
Petry called the public to start the debate about freedom of religion, saying that "this [article 4] protects, under the label of 'freedom of religion,' a religion which in many substantial ways has been imprisoned in the seventeenth century and wants to impose its structures," adding that "we, as democrats, are responsible to rise up against it as we don't want Sharia to enter Germany furtively."
Scores of protesters picketed the AfD rally while holding numerous anti-AfD placards, which condemned the party's anti-immigration policy.
